this DIY candy has its flaws, I would say that in general it's
a success. The biggest problem I had with this kit wasn't a
flaw as much as a misunderstanding, and that was completely
a language issue. Since the instructions weren't in english,
I had to get some help and make a few guesses as to how this
candy worked. I think I managed to figure it out though, and
the results were a neat chocolate like candy that was actually
fun to make. Best of all it looked pretty good even though I
don't have any skills in making small frozen chocolate treats.
Language aside, there
are two things I would consider a flaw in this treat. The first,
and biggest problem was the amount of flavored chocolate offered.
If I'm to believe that I followed the instructions properly
than I was short on chocolate. I didn't have enough to complete
all of the treats and a few cones were left empty. The second
flaw is more personal, but I didn't like the flavor of the chocolate.
I'm generally not a fan of flavored chocolate as it is, and
the melon flavoured chocolate was not great. Fortunately the
flavor wasn't so intense that it ruined the whole treat, it
just wasn't very pleasant.
The biggest surprise
was how well this chocolate chilled in the freezer. It was cool,
and had a really great texture. I'm going to keep an eye open
for different flavors of this treat as it was fun to make and
fun to eat.
